Important construction factors of a Yorkshire built JSW horsebox

  • It is not a box van conversion and then called a ‘new build’ horsebox.
  • We build from undercarriage to roof using ultimately quality and researched products to guarantee the pinnacle in construction.
  • We welcome our patrons to view their box whilst in build, and to see our team at work.
  • Customer care: We are a family team and have been established since 1961, hence you are not dealing with any employed cold-blooded salespersons.

The tabs below demonstrate just a small example of what we can offer on our luxury Carlton horsebox range.  Please talk to us to discuss what YOU want on your NEW JSW horsebox.

A horsebox cannot be built in a handful of weeks - It is a complex and time consuming operation to ensure the vehicle is built to a high standard.  JSW does NOT employ sales representatives and we do not build for dealers, so you are NOT paying extra for any middle-actions purely quality of build.
